We work holistically on four levels to:
Directly support vulnerable children;
Enhance children's household environment;
Improve the local community's situation as conducive to child development; and
Develop a model relevant for supporting children in poor villages across China.
The Project commenced in March 2008 and has a five year plan in which to work with local communities to enhance health and education opportunities for children.

The ChangAi Children's Project was founded by Joe and Leo Horn-Phathanothai, their mother Sirin and their adopted grandmother Patricia Adler.The Phathanothai family has a long history in China. At her Thai father's wishes, Sirin was sent to China at the age of eight as a gesture of goodwill between the two countries. For 13 years Sirin lived under the personal care of Premier Zhou En Lai until the Cultural Revolution when she met Sol and Pat Adler. Sol and Pat welcomed Sirin into their family and loved her as their daughter. Sirin's children, Joe and Leo, naturally became Sol and Pat's adopted grandsons.

The ChangAi Children's Project was born out of a long-held family vision to provide hope to poor and vulnerable children in China. The name "ChangAi" was chosen as it combines the family members' Chinese names ("Chang" from the Chinese name of Sirin Pathanothai and "Ai" from the Adlers) and also means "eternal care".
